    Maybe I made the sauce wrong, but it was awful. I ended up throwing out the sauce, and just put gravy on the meat and that was delicious. But I didn't a recipe to do that. :)

    A sheer lack of flavor in this recipe. Thankfully my meat was not chewy, but very tender. I did have to use a strip steak though instead of the tenderloin since that is what I had on hand. We needed to add salt and pepper to the end product. Just overall bland.

    Followed recipe exactly. I was concerned about browning my $26 beef tenderloin, and then cooking it an additional 15-20 minutes making the sauce. Should have trusted my instincts. It turned out like a cheap piece of meat...chewy & tough. I should have removed the meat after browning it, and returned it to the mixture just to heat before serving. Expensive lesson learned.

    I have been making this recipe every Valentine's Day for several years now. I use spaghetti instead of noodles. That's the only change I make. It is so good and so easy. Always impressive. Thanks!

    Lacks taste and flavor, only paprika and salt. Tasted like something was missing. Won't be making it again. Only did this time as I had beef tenderloin in the freezer.

    Expensive to prepare, but very tasty. Good to make when time is short and you want to impress!
